collective.solr

Solr integration for external indexing and searching.

Project Description

collective.solr

collective.solr integrates the Solr search engine with Plone.

Apache Solr is based on Lucene and is the enterprise open source search engine. It powers the search of sites like Twitter, the Apple and iTunes Stores, Wikipedia, Netflix and many more.

Solr does not only scale to any level of content, but provides rich search functionality, like facetting, geospatial search, suggestions, spelling corrections, indexing of binary formats and a whole variety of powerful tools to configure custom search solutions. It has integrated clustering and load-balancing to provide a high level of robustness.

collective.solr comes with a default configuration and setup of Solr that makes it extremely easy to get started, yet provides a vastly superior search quality compared to Plone's integrated text search based on ZCTextIndex.

Releases of collective.solr can be found on the Python Package Index at http://pypi.python.org/pypi/collective.solr where you can also find more developer oriented information about setup and installation. The code and issue trackers can be found on GitHub at https://github.com/Jarn/collective.solr.
